p.2 Tenders called for Lighthouse at Upper Gap, Bay of Quinte.

p.3 K.C. & M.

-The Schooner Rapid - The design of raising this schooner by means of steam pumps has been abandoned, and a new mode substituted. She was yesterday hauled about 10 feet farther in deep water, so as to raise her more readily, and some 100 coal oil barrels, filled with air, have been forced into her hold, and with the pressure of these, tending upwards, it is expected she will raise herself. The steam pumps have been removed not being further wanted.

-The Harbor - is quiet, some vessels going into winter quarters.

-Change of Time - for steamer Bay of Quinte.

-The Route to Ottawa - Dickenson has fitted up ferry steamer Queen of the Isle with a saloon and other conveniences for passengers to run between Kemptville and Ottawa.

-Imports - 25.
